The site hasn’t been very active lately, but there was no way I could not post about this. However briefly. I know he lived a full life, but this really stings. Still. Romero created a whole genre. He made smart, stylish, horror films that will always been with us.
I’ve been always glad that I got to briefly meet Romero at San Diego Comic-Con years back. I don’t often get star struck, but Romero was one of those times. I was so tongue tied. A real Wayne’s World moment. I remember even saying “do you know who you are?” Hopefully he didn’t think I was too big an oddball, because he was one of my heroes. RIP.
